  1. Hello everyone. My name is Ed I have a bit of an issue where I decided to turn my 15 plus year old aquarium into a planted tank. So lots of $$$ later have created this with my 6x2x2 tank. My problem if you could call it that is I did not take note of the names of the plants I got and I think some are rarer then others. I know some of them like Blue stricta but would like to play a game of guess that plant with the forum members if you so wish to play that is. First one is like a large broad leaf sword that has red speckled growth and grows to about 40 cm. It gets a flower stalk that has little white flowers and new plants grow from them as per next pic. After this one we'll try for the tall twisting plant behind it:egrin: Thanks in advance
  2. The water is getting murkier every day on what a blood parrot is, what a king kong parrot is, what a red texas is etc. A bit of a dilemma for the buyer who expects e.g. a parrot that will grow to maybe 15-18cms getting a midevilXparrot or FHXparrot that quickly grows to 30-35cm with damaging mouthparts. And the variability of so called red texas hybrids is even more confusing. Kind of like the difference between a bull terrier and a mini-fox terriers - both dogs and both terriers but that's where it ends. Its even more of a worry when you are breeding and want to get some uniform results. How useful would it be to develop some physical descriptions that a fish has to meet before it can be called and advertised as a blood parrot, KKP, RT etc and how would it best be done?
  3. Just thought I'd make a compilation of all americans that can be found in Australia and their common/synonymous names. Kinda tired of seeing odd names thrown all over, so this hopefully would clear up confusions. Note #1: Does not include hybrids. Note #2: Scientific names taken from NCBI. Note #3: List will first include the species' scientific name, its synonymous names (i.e. ex-scientific names), and then common names. Note #4: I am sure I'll miss out on a lot of species, especially SAs, coz I don't know too much about them. If someone would kindly help me... Note #5: Any specific notes about a fish will have a superscript following the scientific name. For further info about said fish, check the bottom of the post.

The True Green Terror, Andinoacara stalsbergi, does not seem to exist in Australia. Additionally, the 'Silver Saum', commonly referred to as a color morph of A. rivulatus could be a different species altogether. 4 ::: All specimen in Australia are most likely of the Escondido variety, and are hence all 'Super Green Texas'. 5 ::: Severums in Australia are believed to be H. efasciatus (or hybrids of H. efasciatus and other Heros species), rather than Heros severus. H. severus is actually very rare in the aquaria. 6 ::: Has a marbled form. Made in Australia. 7 ::: Is being considered as possibly a junior synonym of P. melanurus. 8 ::: Exists in green and red forms, aptly named Green Bay Snook and Red Bay Snook. 9 ::: Angelfish are believed to be derived from various species within the the Pterophyllum genus. 10 ::: Also comes in a pseudo-lethal form, with an electric blue coloration and referred to as an Electric Blue Jack Dempsey (EBJD). EBJDs are physiologically deformed, and tends to be weaker than their 'wild' counterparts. EBJD x EBJD are hard to produce viable fry. 11 ::: Discus are believed to be mainly derived from S. aequifasciata, but are heavily hybridized with Symphysodon discus, Symphysodon haraldi and basically specimens of the genus Symphysodon in general. 12 ::: (Almost) all are believed to suffer from spinal deformities, whether visible or otherwise. If anyone has any additions, go ahead and post them/PM me. ---------------------- Updates: 06/06/2013 -Added footnote to Green Terror (footnote 3), bumped every other footnote down by 1. 02/06/2013 -Added Pterophyllum Altum. -Changed footnote 8. -Added Cichlasoma bocourti. -Added Paraneetroplus argentea. -Added Paraneetroplus regani. 22/05/2013 -Added Amphilophus citrinellus, the Midas Cichlid. Turns out pure Midas can be found after all. -Modified footnote for Amphilophus labiatum, more purebreeds are around than thought. Old footnote: "2 ::: Few pure Red Devils are believed to exist in Australia, as most are hybrids containing Midas Cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus) DNA." -Added Neetroplus nematopus (Neets). -Added Geophagus sp. "tapajos red head", i.e. Red Head Tapajos.

  8. I have had this book marked for a while and thought of it as a fantastic resource for most cichlids. Check it out. http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/n ... allery.php Another good resource is the Aquarium Wiki http://www.theaquariumwiki.com/Main_Page
  9. Just wondering if anybody could clear this up for me it sort of ties in with the hybird discussions but For example a Frontosa (I dont know much about frontosas though so im going to use made up variants) 1. Say a Frontosa from B and a Frontosa from C were to interbreed would the frontosa BC be a hybrid?, where the only difference was where in the lake they are found and their colours which is what them distinguishable in the wild they wouldn't breed I assume since they would be in different parts of the lake; they are the same species though...so thats where I'm confused 2. And if a fish like a Frontosa from B is from one part of a lake and has different colouration to a Frontosa from C, is the only difference that they are from a different lake and have different colour? how do people classify species from different parts of the same place if colouration is the only difference? like all the different types of cyprichromis leptosoma or tropheus unless theres other things that depict the naming of a species... depending on the answer to this question, I might have another question If that didnt make sense then um heres a shorter version I'm trying to find out how and why one species of fish is named slightly different (extra bit in their normal species name) and is it only due to where they are found and the colouration differences? and secondly, is it considered a hyrbid if the same species mixes but they are different variants (different colours) since in the wild it wouldn't happen and also for example with Tropheus, they can interbreed, they are considered the same species (sp. Tropheus?) but have varients like moorii and bemba, is it purely because of colour and region differences again? (their colours are very different to different species, just like discus fish come in many colours)

  15. Ok I am going to ramble on a bit but there goes. I have some fish up for sale. I brought them as an albino form of Metriaclima fainzilberi (pombo rock). Now I don't see the name Metriaclima come up much on any of the places I read, so I fell into the stupid newbie trap of think it wasn't a common fish. The guy that I got the juvi's off of has been breeding these down from wild caught stock that was throwing albinos. Now these guys are throwing pure albinos. Making them worth more again, so I thought. I had never bother to search just the first name Metriaclima. Just for the sake of it today I decided to. I now have no idea of what these guys are worth. I find that Metriaclima is a name that is also related to zebra etc, Pseudotropheus. Man I hate all the scientific names, they are too hard to follow. Basically it comes down to: Do I have the right name of these guys? and What are they worth? Thanks Jenny (Oh also to the guy I got these fish off, it's not that I don't believe you gave me the right name I just need to check for myself and I hate the scientific names. They are great fish, I just don't want cichlids anymore)
